David Perlmutter, M.D., Releases New Book, Grain Brain


L


ittle, Brown and Company has released Dr. David Perlmutter’s new book, Grain Brain: The Surprising


Truth About Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar—Your Brain’s Silent Killers, Perlmutter, the only U.S. board-certi- fied neurologist who is also a fellow of the American College of Nutrition, exposes the dangers of carbo- hydrates—even “healthy” fruits and whole grains—to overall brain health. In this groundbreaking exposé on the impacts that carbohydrates have on everything from chronic headaches and insomnia to depression, epilepsy, ADHD, and Alzheimer’s, Perlmutter ex- plains that the brain has not yet evolved to be able to handle the kind of high-carb, high-gluten and high- sugar diet we typically eat. His answer—a four-week plan to teach us what we should be eating in order to take back our brain health.


Perlmutter, president of the Perlmutter Health Center, in Naples, proposes


a dramatic new definition of a healthy life and explores fraudulent, but popular misconceptions that dietary fat causes heart disease; statins are safe and correct the “problem” of high cholesterol; and eating antioxidant-rich foods such as blue- berries and beans helps prevent disease. Grain Brain outlines a practical plan of action anyone can use to create a more focused, disease-free brain tomorrow.


David Perlmutter, M.D., is the co-founder and president of the Perlmutter Brain Foundation. The recipient of numerous awards, including the Linus Pauling Award, he serves on the Medical Advisory Board of the Dr. Oz Show and is a frequent lecturer. He is a contributor to the Huffington Post, a blogger at DrPerl- mutter.com and the author of The Better Brain Book, Raise a Smarter Child by Kindergarten, and Power Up Your Brain.
